Shunk Gulley. Go up top. Stinky's is okay. Be careful as I think they shut down a lot of seaside/ the events going on during the summer.

Seaside now has an 8 PM curfew. For that reason we canceled our trip next week and will go when things ease up a bit.

Breakfast: The Donut Hole (either the one at Inlet Beach or the one headed back toward Sandestin. Get the omelette with the lobster in it.)

If Red Bar is reopen (and it's getting close) I'd head there although the whole world will also be heading there.

Have a great trip....

get to Donut hole early.

Redbar is a staple but be ready to hike when you find somewhere to park and wait to eat.

there is a restaurant on 98 that I think is owned by the same people as redbar, can’t remember the name it’s bigger but will still be crowded.

Rooftop at bud and alleys is cool for drinks, food will be underwhelming but not bad for a snack.

Perfect pig is pretty casual but always been impressed with the food.

Surfing deer in sea grove.

Georges or Caliza In Alys beach.

have fun, been going since I was a kid, crazy how it’s grown over the years. Almost too crowded at this point but we still go back every year.

30A long road. Kinda depends on where your staying. You will not want to travel by car if you don’t have too

Yes! The fried lobster tail is great. Paradis is one of my favorites. Cafe 30A is good as well. Great crabcake.

Goatfeathers is great if you are cooking in. I love their steamed shrimp for a late afternoon snack.

the tapas place by the pearl is good, its called La Crema. Bud and Alleys food isnt great but the view is good. Red bar has become overrun with tourists but its still good to eat at. If you go to destin, go to harbor docks and see yoshi at the sushi bar.

Great Southern, Goatfeathers, Louis Louis (best restaraunt IMO), Hurricane’s Oyster Bar, Donut Hole, Chanticleer, are all Seaside and West. Don’t think I’ve ever actually been past Seaside in 20 years of going.

Red bar was great, but did not take credit cards, could not understand that? I think it burned since then, was supposed to open this summer.

Basmati's is great seafood and sushi. They will take reservations too, which is very important at this time of year.

Blue Mabel in Blue Mountain Beach is very good.

Most 30A restaurants are mediocre at best.

agree with above. Most of 30a has turned into overpriced rentals for Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Houston, etc with average food for people who want a beach trip for 4 days a year to sit on the beach under an umbrella and tell people they went to 30a. Destin has better food.

Perfect Pig has some of the best breakfast options down there. The location on 395 at Publix probably has the most space if you've got a good sized group.

A little off 30A; but, the wine bar at Chan’s Liquors in Destins is one of our favorites. They have one at Watercolor on 30A; but, we like the one in Destin better.

Louie Louie on 98 is owned by the same folks as Red Bar, pretty much the same menu as well if I remember correctly.
